The historic properties in the easement program are protected forever through legally binding covenants that prevent demolition. Alterations may be approved after review by Historic Preservation Program staff, the Historical Affairs Landmark Review Board (HALRB), and the County Manager. Easements achieved through the County’s Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) Ordinance allow for preservation of historic buildings by “shifting” their density onto a site better suited for redevelopment. Other organizations, including the Northern Virginia Conservation Trust, and the Virginia Department of Historic Resources hold easements for historic properties in Arlington County. Many of our easement properties are also locally designated, eligible for listing on the National Register, or listed in the Historic Resources Inventory.
